As I begin to grow older, I begin to see a difference in the way people are raised or behave in given situations. I see people treat their elders horrible and the people around me. I sometimes wonder why people behave the way they do in front of others and why they treat people terribly. I now begin to realize that maybe it is the way they raised. I'm not 100% sure if it is the way people are raised, but I know for a fact that the way that I was raised, is the reason I treat people fair and nice.I was raised under a roof with my parents and grandparents. Under this roof, they taught me manners, how to treat people, and to help others in need.
When somebody gives me something or compliments me, I was raised to say "thank you" and if I was to ask for something, I was to always say "please." My parents did not punish me if I did not respond with those words, but they would be disappointed and talk to me about my manners. But, I do not see a lot of this in today's society, I see a lot of people expecting to receive something for somebody, and lack the knowledge to say "please" and "thank you." It is simple and polite to begin and end a sentence with those phrases.
When my parents sent me to Pre-School, they taught me how to treat others around me. They taught me to not pull their hair, steal their items, and most importantly, they taught me to treat everybody the way I would want to be treated. I fail to understand why some people in this generation cannot treat people nicely. It hurts to see peoples' feelings hurt every day, and I cannot fathom why people would treat people in such a horrible manner, that the person feels unwanted. Everybody just wants to have a friend, and making fun of a person does not help them. Personally, being nice to everybody has made me so many friends, and known as a good person to be around.
My parents also told me to help those who are in need. When somebody was in need of help, they told me to help them. They told me to feed and to give clothes and such to those who need it. They even told me to help those who are struggling, because you never know what they have gone through.
I just want to thank the house that built me. I do think that my parents raised me right and that it has helped me grow into a good person. It has helped me treat people nicely and it has helped me with making the friends that I have today. Being raised with manners and treating people nicely is something that a lot of people lack these days, and it is something that should be corrected in modern society.
